The new traffic regulations. – Sweeping changes in fines, poor driving behavior of the driver to operate punitive

Coming radical changes to the KDR, what it includes. under strict for serious infringements. Sweeping changes in fines, crippling sanctions eliminated….Ριζική ανατροπή στον Κώδικα Οδικής Κυκλοφορίας θα επιφέρει η αλλαγή του σχετικού νόμου, which prepares the transport ministry.

As the "Sunday Nation" examines the deletion predatory sanctions, such as lifelong disqualification from driving in case of relapse in the same infringement, while the fines to be imposed for each violation will be unified and will not follow income criteria, as provided by the current traffic laws, although it is still pending the application of the provision.

The "philosophy" of the new Highway Code is changed completely, aimed poor driving human behavior behind the wheel to operate punitive for him, but not to drive, practice followed today for commercial vehicles.

As a result, infringements will be drastically reduced for which the elements of the car will be removed (license and traffic signs).

Ministry sources point out that this is imperative, as in many cases the car is family and with the offending driver "punished" and can not work the whole family.

For example, if anyone found driving without wearing a seat belt, The user license will be removed, but not the vehicle's registration certificate, and will be reviewed and the restoration of financial penalties in these cases.

However infringements are considered too dangerous for causing serious road accident, such as red light violation, excessive speed or irregular overtaking, considered to be removed and the data of car.

In the majority of infringements no radical changes are expected in fines.

However, weight will be given to their repayment, which if not done in a reasonable time, the offender driver will see the amount due to the tax return via Taxisnet.

Besides, it is estimated that the lack of a fine is not a deterrent to violations.

Rather it has created "tails" drivers outside political offices or the offices of the Traffic Police to manage to get back earlier than anticipated months off and diploma.

repayment simplified

During this period, the ministry is reviewing the law and the level of fines envisaged, with an emphasis on simplifying the procedure for charging.

There has been agreement on the principle between the Transport Ministries, Finance (Principle of authorization) and Digital Governance in payment of fines.

The new Highway Code, which is expected to be completed early next year, the defaulting debtor will have the intended means of appeal for the fine imposed, and then, and if the complaint has been rejected, You will be given a reasonable time 2-3 months to repay the debt, which at the end of this interval passes as liability through Taxis.

"The goal is to know that the offender can not escape from the penalty of either a special favor or because nobody sought this debt ' highlight sources of the Transport Ministry, adding that the extra revenue from the collection of fines will be directed to funding for road safety actions and the implementation of a new tool, of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SVAK).

Today the steps of enforcement and the recovery of a fine is about sixty, and ambition of the new Highway Code is to reduce the 15.

In the direction of improving the collectability of fines, the ministry is considering the return of ten days for the repayment discount.

Recall that the existing provisions repealed the possibility of payment of half the amount of the first ten days, but it has halved the fines.

There are three main reasons why no fines levied today, as estimated by the same sources:

  1. complicated bureaucratic, the imposition by the recovery of the fine,
  2. the non-recovery of the debt the majority of municipalities and
  3. the lack of enforcement mechanism.

And the new Highway Code, in any case, there will still be the categorization of infringements, which was established by the law 2018 and separating into a low, medium and high risk, setting fines:

  • until 100 euro for the first category,
  • from 101 until 300 euros for the second and
  • from 301 until 600 euro for the third, except very dangerous infringements.

However it seems that will change is the height, and the logic of fines.

The existing Highway Code states that infringements of the same class the fine should be uniform, which would not apply.

Besides actually categorization basically not implemented, as though the latter law counts over 1,5 application time, They never took the ministerial decisions which will define the exact offenses by category and expensive fines.

The legislative committee that was set up with this purpose delivered its findings just before the elections, without that it could take the form of ministerial decision.

briefly, the main change being revised Highway Code fall:

  • Maintaining the removal of vehicle data for infringements related to the vehicle, such as the lack of acknowledgment from MOT technical inspection or damage to lights etc..
  • Very serious infringements, such as alcohol consumption, red light violation, speeding, the combination of penalties and fines is examined and maintenance of removing the vehicle data as a deterrent measure.
  • Penalties for some offenses will be dealt with individually and afstiropoiithoun. At least two infringements, such as excessive alcohol consumption and the improvised races (battle), which are considered as a 'conscious' infringement, the fine will increase from 700 euro currently in force.
  • Note that currently the highest fine (except alcohol) They are 700 euro and imposed, including, red light violation, STOP, in irregular overtaking and dangerous maneuvers.
  • Repeal the provision on lifelong removal of driving license, which is currently provided for in cases of double or triple recidivism in very serious infringements, like alcohol, as it is estimated that there is the penitentiary character must have a penalty.
  • Remove the provision for fines to income criteria, which is estimated to be unworkable, and epanathesmothetisi same fine at all for the same offense.
  • With,Regarding foreign commercial vehicles, in any case, and audits by mixed levels on highways, tested and field collection of fines both on traffic and other infringements, as the different registered load, either by credit card or they are restrained until paid the fine. This is because today often fines imposed in such cases, but which are never paid.

Testimonials Transportation

Difficult believes it is the common treatment sentence, ie the fine and administrative sanctions, even for offenses within the same risk category, Traffic and the representative of the Hellenic Institute of Transportation in the Highway Code Committee, Panagiotis Papantoniou, who noted that 20 months after the revision of the Highway Code, he has not been completed and it remains unclear:

"This results in the traffic police being called to police six offenses with new sanctions, as in all other pending their categorization and temporarily apply the oldest fines. This vague framework has extremely negative effects on the country's road safety 'notes.

even mentions as an example the anecdotal evidence of Traffic for the first half of 2019, according to the observed increase in all road safety indicators, as numbers of dead and heavily and lightly injured exhibits increased compared with the first half of 2018.

Recall that six violations, for which only apply administrative sanctions and removal patent registration, They are

  1. non-use of seat belts and helmets,
  2. movement in Gaza Emergency,
  3. rejecting items (cigarettes etc.) by car,
  4. improper mobile phone use,
  5. preventing or illegal parking in disabled ramps and
  6. failure to use special equipment for drivers transporting children (special seat).
